Hair Loss

January 10, 2014 1:21:10 PM PST

Do you find yourself asking the question – “where did all of this hair come from?”

Insufficient caloric intake or a deficiency in some of the nutritional components listed below can lead to hair loss:

*Iron – Numerous studies show that low iron levels in blood have been linked to increased rates of hair loss. Iron is an essential nutrient in restoring hair growth and preventing shedding. 

*Vitamin D – Studies have shown that low Vitamin D levels are associated with female hair loss. 

*Minerals – Copper, magnesium, selenium and zinc are just a few of the minerals that help to maintain hair health and aid in the ability of our hair to function properly.

*Biotin – As an essential B vitamin (B7), biotin acts as a co-factor in the body for a variety of metabolic reactions including the formation of various proteins and amino acids. These proteins and amino acids play a crucial role in hair health.

*Protein – Although not a common deficiency in North America, inadequate protein intake can contribute to hair loss.

*Omega 3 Fatty Acids – Along with adequate protein intake, omega 3’s can help to prevent hair loss.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is crucial for hair health. Ensure that you are getting adequate amounts of essential nutrients through a healthy diet and take appropriate supplementation as needed. Reduce stress and use ‘natural’ skin and hair care products for you and your family.

What kind of toothpaste do you use?

January 10, 2014 1:09:21 PM PST

We have long been told by dentists that fluoride helps strengthen our teeth and promote mental health. However, what they don’t know is that fluoride can cause numerous health problems. From something as simple as discoloured teeth to serious birth defects, numerous studies have proven that fluoride can cause severe problems. Fluoride is a highly toxic substance. It is more toxic than lead, but slightly less toxic than arsenic. 

While water is pretty difficult to avoid, fluoride-free toothpastes are much easier to find. It is important to minimize our exposure to fluoride so that we and our children do not accidentally ingest too much fluoride. Always remember to read labels and ingredients to pick the best toothpaste.
